If you have the sort of schedule that allows for midday visits to the Art Institute, the Chic Reflections lunchtime lecture series on "fashion & modernity" sure sounds fascinating. (The 411: starts next Friday, runs weekly for a month; features scholars from the Chicago Historical Society, the AIC and its school; single tickets also available; call 312/443-3680 for more.)
